Geo 1095: February 20, Day 781: Humpty Dumpty

Like Humpty Dumpty, this (now dry) set of pool terraces was as delicate as eggshells. Unlike Humpty Dumpty, it didn't fall off a wall, but rather was trampled by tour groups earlier in the cave's history. You can't see that from the trail now, because happily, also unlike Humpty Dumpty, Park employees, such as internet geology friend @helenasrox and her mother, were able to painstakingly piece it back together again. Somehow, this makes me feel like the hundreds of hours I've spent with jigsaw puzzles weren't entirely wasted.
